Please mark your calendars if you haven’t yet attended an Ohio Ready to Read Early Literacy 101 workshop. This training provides essential early literacy information that is valuable for all staff who plan & present storytimes and other programs for children. Participants will learn how brain development impacts how young children learn, and will explore effective, research-based early literacy resources and activities. The workshop covers the Six Early Literacy Skills presented in the PLA/ALSC Every Child Ready to Read® 1st edition, and the Five Early Literacy Practices presented in the 2nd edition, along with other early literacy concepts and storytime tips.
Ohio Ready to Read trainers Kate McCartney of Marysville Library and Janet Ingraham Dwyer of the State Library of Ohio will lead the NORWELD workshop. The registration form indicates the workshop will be held at the NORWELD office, but it has been moved to the library. Registrants will receive an email before the workshop that confirms the location.
